Quach Hoa, member of the company’s Board of Directors, said the Soc Trang-Con Dao route is expected to be launched in June.
The project, with a total investment of VND90 billion, sits on over 3.6 ha in Dau Giong Village, Tran De Town.
It includes jetty, dyke, terminal, restaurant, reading room, parking, entertainment areas, and other auxiliary facilities.
According to Nguyen Van The, Secretary of the provincial Party’s Committee, the province lures 1.2 million tourists every year. The route is expected to lure more tourists to Con Dao Island via Soc Trang.
He pledged that Soc Trang will create optimal conditions for investors and will continue developing infrastructure facilities, services to promote tourism.
According to the company, speedboat Superdong Con Dao 1, being built in Malaysia at a cost of around VND50 billion (US$2.2 million), has a capacity of 306 passengers. The ship will be delivered to the company in May. In the first six months of operation, the ship is expected to serve 30,000 people between Soc Trang and Con Dao.
Speedboat Superdong Con Dao 2 is expected to be put into operation in the first quarter in 2018.
Con Dao is an island district of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. Sitting 185 km from Vung Tau City and 230 km from Ho Chi Minh City, Con Dao plays a significant role in socio-economic, defence and security development in the country’s southern seas and islands.
It is also home to important tangible and intangible national cultural heritages presenting substantial potential to develop various forms of tourism such as ecological and spiritual tourism..
